Don’t shoot the messenger but we’re in a funk

By Blacksheep

Those that know me (not that many of course) or that have read things I’ve written before (a few more perhaps) will [hopefully] be aware that I’m quite a positive person when it comes to most things including Arsenal. I’m pleased to contribute to this blog because it supports the club, the team […]

Sky-way robbery? Time to fight back, football fans

by Ché ‘Blacksheep’ Guevara

The moving of the Arsenal v. Leicester City game from Saturday 13 February to lunchtime on the Sunday won’t inconvenience me from a travel perspective but it will give me an awkward decision to make (given its Valentine’s day). I think I know what I will do but at least I […]

Criminal goings on in and around the Emirates…

By ‘DI’ Blacksheep

The confirmation that the police inquiry into the mysterious death of Alexander Litvinenko included a visit to the Emirates Stadium (where they found traces of the radioactive plutonium that killed him) got me thinking about football-related crime scenarios. I am a historian that specializes in the history of crime and punishment (although […]

The Emirates Cup 2015: an upstairs downstairs report

By Blacksheep

After what seems to have been a very short summer break football was back at the Emirates and I set off to get my early pre-season fix this weekend. This year I rang the changes a little, decided to go BOTH days and to experience it from different vantage points.

As you may […]

Gunners vs Villains: five of the best (and worst) and a new hero emerges

By Blacksheep

Today was a five star performance from the Arsenal against a Villa side that might need to readjust to life in the Championship if they can’t get their act together soon. But I’ll leave the match report to Walter when he gets back from leading Arsenal Belgium to the Emirates.

I experienced 5 […]

Cup final thoughts: do smoke bombs damage your mental stability?

By Walter Broeckx

As Untold Arsenal is a site that talks about football in general and not only about Arsenal I would like to talk about the cup final in Holland. And there are a few links with Arsenal in this. And with articles written on Untold in the last months. And the Hull – […]

Sky Bet League One, Sixfields Stadium, Northampton – Attendance 1,966

So on a bright sunny day in Northampton (not) and with nothing better to do (except mark essays) it was off to see a local football match to take the mind off Saturday’s defeat. I arrived early, narrowly […]

An AISA evening with Alan Smith & Paddy Barclay

One of the benefits of being a membership of AISA is the handful of events they organize each year. This one was really interesting, a chance to meet Alan Smith and the renowned sports journalist, Patrick Barclay and be entertained by Tom Watt (ex Eastenders’ ‘Lofty’ and full time Arsenal fan).

The event took […]

‘West London is wunderfulllllll!’: untold Lower league on tour

This article is part of a series in which Untold writers have travelled the length and breadth of the country (well, the Midlands, London and the south) visiting other clubs on days when there is no Arsenal game. Today…

Brentford FC 2-0 Port Vale (Attendance 8,327)

On Saturday my brother and I made our […]

Sing up for the Arsenal (squad)

Tony and I were musing on the way back from the Hull City game on Wednesday about the crowd again, and in particular about the singing of certain players’ songs. This has prompted me to write this post and I’d welcome your collected thoughts.

I remember a time (in the old Highbury days) when my […]

The Emirates: a view from the cheap(er) seats

Sometime ago Untold ran a grumbling piece about the man from row 15 who couldn’t be bothered to applaud the team even after we had despatched Fenebache (and Fulham the weekend before). He was still urging (very quietly it has to be said) M. Wenger to ‘spend some f***ing money’. Well, his wishes were answered […]

Purple Army triumphant in the Trophy!

Untold Non-League: Daventry Town FC 3-2 Ramsgate FC

Attendance 215 (including Untold’s intrepid reporter!)

Communication Park, home of DTFC

Once again no ‘proper’ football only pointless internationals (and them not at weekends) meant that I decided to look around to see what was on offer at my local football grounds. I hit […]

The AISA AGM (from one who was there); a fairer deal for all

I have to say that meetings aren’t the most fun things one can do in life but when they take place in the posh bit of the Emirates (Club level) and free curry is included it all helps to improve the mood.

I am a committee member of AISA although I’ve struggled to make any […]

The Untold non-league tour continues: men against gingerbread boys*

Grantham Town 1-5 FC United of Manchester (att. 739)

Last Saturday Tony and I travelled to the South Kesteven Sports stadium, in Grantham, Lincolnshire, to watch a match in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League. It’s part of the Untold Non-League tour, which has already taken us to watch Corby and Guernsey (away at Crawley […]

The FA and League has only themselves (and the police, and Tottenham) to blame for the racism mess

By Tony Attwood

According to reports Tom Adeyemi who plays for Oldham, on loan from Norwich City, was racially abused by one or more Liverpool fans at the Anfield ground last night. He gave a statement to Merseyside Police in which it is understood he claimed to have been racially abused twice by a supporter.

On being an Arsenal fan from India

Dear Tony

I have been a reader of your blog for a long time now and if you have an elephant’s memory, you may remember having seen a comment or two from a person who calls himself ‘La Shiz’. That person happens to be me. Even though I don’t contribute to the comments of your […]
